OOTD: Flowers Everywhere

Hi readers! I hope you're all having a lovely Thursday. Today I decided to break out a top I got at Anthropologie in 2006. I love the soft floral print and how comfortable it is.

Today I'm on my way to visit family in Utah and I can't wait to see them! So for the next few weeks my posting and commenting will be very limited as I'd like to make sure I spend as much time with them as I can. Of course when I get back I'll be sure to catch up with all of you. ;)

O Christmas Tree

Since my husband and I are still in the middle of a move, this year we decided to go for a SIMPLE Christmas tree. When I saw this David Stark Twig Topiary Tree at West Elm, I immediately fell in love with it. I decorated it with pearl white ornaments, glittery birds and mercury glass pears.

My very own partridge in a pear tree!
I think David Stark is such a talented party planner and designer and I would love to add more of his decorations from west elm to my collection! You can check them all out here.

OOTD: It's Raining, It's Pouring

This past weekend it was raining cats and dogs. All. Day. Long. So I had to break out my new rainboots (which were a gift from my husband when we first moved to Portland, thanks hubby!). I love these boots! Aside from being really adorable, they kept my feet nice and dry while I splashed around in all the puddles. ;)

OOTD: Stripes & Polka Dots

Well readers, you can tell when I love something because I wear it a LOT! Yes, I'm wearing this skirt again but I decided to mix it up a little and throw a print with it. I thought the stripes would be a good counterpoint to the polka dots and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Plus, the sequin detail and my shoes add a little sparkle to the look.

And some good news...we finally found a place to live! It will be a few more weeks before we can move in but it's such a relief to have that done. ;)

OOTD: Green Means CarGO!

It's finally Friday! Have any fun plans for the weekend? Mine will be filled up with more apartment searching since we still need to find a place to live. Wish me luck! And my Anthropologie Pebbled & Primped Boots arrived yesterday and they were way too big in the calf area so they're going back. Oh well, I guess it's money saved!

West Elm Christmas Decor

When it comes to Christmas decor, I'm really into white and metallic with accents of the traditional red and green. West Elm has some great decorations this year and the following are at the top of my wishlist.


1. West Elm David Stark Twig Topiary - love this little tree!
2. West Elm Mosaic Spheres - these would look great on a mantle.
3. West Elm Mercury Glass Shape Ornaments - love mercury glass.
4. West Elm Paper Flower Wreath - so pretty!
5. West Elm Novelty Nutcracker - love the all white nutcracker.
6. West Elm Mercury Glass Vases - again, LOVE mercury glass!
7. West Elm Scalloped Trees - these would look great in an entryway.

With all of my decorations still in boxes, I ordered the David Stark Twig Topiary for my Christmas tree this year. Stay tuned, I'll have pics for you on the blog soon!

OOTD: Striking A Corduroy

Happy Wednesday readers! Yesterday was sale day at Anthropologie and I picked up this from my wishlist. I'm so excited that it finally went on sale! And I was a good girl and stuck to my ban, for the most part. I had my husband pick up this as a Christmas present for me. ;) What did you get?

OOTD: You Say You Want A Revelation

I love The Beatles as much as I love this skirt (and they are now on iTunes, yay)! The Anthropologie Revelations Skirt came out last year and since I was pregnant, I passed it up. Of course I later regretted not getting it. So after months and months of eBay stalking, I finally found one and made it mine! And don't worry, I used a paypal credit to pay for it so I didn't break my shopping ban. I adore this skirt and see so many different styling options that I can't wait to try out! This is how I wore it to church yesterday...

OOTD: Easy, Breezy Polka Girl

I picked up this cardigan on a whim and it is quickly becoming one of my favorites! I love the red color and the adorable chiffon bow. And I love how the bow on my cardigan is echoed by the bows on my boots.

And Anthropologie surprised us yesterday with a sale. I was kinda good and stuck to my wishlist and picked up the this and this. I ended up passing on the Eze Sur Mer Top, since the xs was too tight and the small was too loose. The one thing I got that wasn't on my wishlist were some tights and a necklace. The tights popped back up in my wishlist and were only $10 so I caved! And the Poms & Trinkets Necklace was just too cute to pass up! I guess it could have been worse, right!?! ;)
ETA: That necklace is now full price, but it was on sale yesterday! Glad I got it when I did.
